Lady Tremaine takes over Cinderella’s Royal Table after everyone has gone to bed, and she’s invited some of the most evil friends and special guests for a decadent dessert party (maybe you’ll see the Evil Queen, Maleficent, Cruella de Vil or Dr. Facilier?).

Lady Tremaine will welcome guests, and her personal piano player provides live music. (She’ll sing a few haunting solos while guests enjoy the delicious desserts inspired by the villains.)

Cost is $99 ages 3 and older, plus tax (gratuity included). Admission to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is required – this is a separate ticketed event not included in Magic Kingdom Park admission. Tickets for the soiree are limited and reservations recommended! Call 407-939-5262 – no online reservations.

    Watch the Headless Horseman lead off the parade on a hair-raising ride, followed by a collection of frightful floats and some of your favorite Disney Characters in Halloween costumes.
  • Preferred Viewing for HalloWishes Fireworks Spectacular
    The Ghost Host from the Haunted Mansion and some of the most notorious Disney Villains light up the sky to wicked remixes of their favorite songs.

New ‘Pirates’ Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom Card Coming to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

posted on August 12th, 2014 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Social Media Manager


When Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party returns to Magic Kingdom Park September 1, Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom fans are in for an additional party “treat” – the chance to pick up another event-exclusive game card.

SMK807799

In case you’re a Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom newbie, SOTMK is an in-park interactive experience that allows guests join Merlin in a quest to defeat a team of Disney villains who are scheming to take over the park. Guests use maps to search for villain’s lairs throughout the park. When they find a magic portal, guests use spell cards that each feature a different magical power to foil a villain’s plan. This complimentary experience begins in the Firehouse on Main Street, U.S.A., where you can pick up everything you need to join in the fun.

This year’s special event card features the Helmsman pirate from the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction.

The Pirate Helmsman’s Bombardment card will be distributed in addition to the regular Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom card packs (yes, you can still pick up both while attending the party). Guests must show their party ticket and event wristband in order to get one.

Can’t wait to test this card out? Share your excitement in the comments section below!

Throughout the month of October, we’ve presented a look at the spooky side of Disney Parks around the world. This week, we’re celebrating Halloween at Magic Kingdom Park with a chilling look at three residents of the Haunted Mansion – the Hitchhiking Ghosts.

In this photo, shot by Disney Photographer Gene Duncan, ghosts Ezra, Gus and Phineas (their unofficial names) appear to hitchhike down the parade route during Mickey’s Boo-To-You Parade at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

posted on October 3rd, 2013 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Social Media Manager


Have you seen Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party? It’s one of my favorite parts of our annual Halloween party at Magic Kingdom Park.

 Mickey's Boo-To-You Halloween Parade

This year, guests waiting for the parade to start on Main Street, U.S.A., can join Phineas and Ferb (and the Creepa Crew) in a special dance prior to the parade’s arrival. The parade also features plenty of Halloween fun, including Mickey Mouse and friends in costumes, candy-themed floats, and one of my favorites – a section of the parade that’s inspired by The Haunted Mansion!

Check out the video below for a look at what’s new in this year’s parade.

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom Park – Tips For Beginners

posted on September 23rd, 2013 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Social Media Manager


Halloween is one of my absolute favorite holidays, which is why one of our family’s must-dos each fall is to attend a Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. These special event parties at Magic Kingdom Park are the perfect way to get into the fall spirit.

In case you’re attending your first party this year, here are some tips on how you can make the most of your evening.

The Party Requires a Separate Ticket

We see this question every year, and yes, entry to the party requires a separate Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party ticket (even if you’re visiting the park earlier in the day, the party requires separate entry). Here’s a tip – you may receive a discount on select event nights when you purchase tickets in advance. Some nights do sell out, so buying tickets ahead of time is suggested. You can find that information here.

Wear Costumes

Kids (of all ages) are welcome to wear costumes to the party. It doesn’t matter whether your costume is elaborate or homemade, dressing up puts you in the Halloween spirit and sure makes for cute photos with Disney characters – who also don their Halloween best!

Grab a Special Event Map

The best way to ensure you don’t miss a thing is by grabbing an event map on the way in. These special maps show the location of trick-or-treat stations and special character greetings and list the times for must-see Halloween entertainment.

Try Trick-Or-Treat Stations

Guests of all ages are also welcome to trick-or-treat throughout the park at designated treat stations and special treat trails – pathways that offer multiple candy stops along the way. This year, more than 220 tons of candy are on order, so be sure to pick up a complimentary trick-or-treat bag on your way into the park.

Watch Mickey’s “Boo-to-You” Halloween Parade

Any Disney parade is amazing, but if you’d like to see a procession of characters in Halloween costumes, marching Haunted Mansion butlers, dancing hitchhiking ghosts, Goofy’s giant candy machine and more, Mickey’s “Boo-To-You” Halloween Parade is a must-see!

Don’t Miss “Happy HalloWishes” Fireworks

One of the highlights of the event is the special Halloween-themed fireworks show that takes place at 9:30 p.m. “Happy HalloWishes” is narrated by the Ghost Host from The Haunted Mansion and features sections inspired by Cruella de Vil, Jafar, Oogie Boogie and other Disney villains.
